Re: Keep family society.

My keeps were in Wootton Bedfordshire but there is some conflicting information about where else we come from over there in the UK. You tell me how close these places are from each other & whether it was likely that people would move from one of these locations to the other. I will bore you with my line - will you post yours?

My grandmother was
Adelaide Elsie May Keep b 1902 Australia & she married Ben O'Malley (Have birth & marriage & death certs) & they had 9, my mum the eldest. Grandma O'M was the dau of

Henry Frost Keep b 10/2/1881 d 1968 Kogarah NSW Aust & Adelaide Harrison (Have birth & marriage 1901 & death certs for both )- they had 7 ; he was son of

Thomas Henry Keep (born 22/1/1851 Clarence River NSW Australia) & Adelaide Wortley (married 22/12/1877 Rocky Point) (Have birth marriage & death certs for both) they had 9 children; Tom was son of

Thomas Keep b 15/3/1823 @ Wootten Bedfordshire d 15/3/1897 marr 19/6/1848 Eliza Frost B 1828 (Have birth & marriage & death certs) they had 12 children; Thomas was son of

Samuel Keep b 7/2/1799 Wootten & Mary Walker 1801 married 1/2/1821 (both died in Cooks River area NSW Aust - Sam in 1875 & Mary 1882) (Have marriage cert) they had 9 children; Sam was son of

Richard Keep b1765 & Elizabeth Hull 1764 married 1788 they had 8 children; Richard was son of

Thomas Keep 14/4/1734.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
the following is under scrutiny
he & Ann Bates marr 19/5/1766 @ Marston Moretaine (I believed he died in Aust not proven); Tom was son of

John Keep b 10/7/1715 @ Marston (d Turvey)& Susanna Slatcher; John was son of

William Keep b 1687 & Sarah Hodges; Will was son of

William Keep b 1665 & Mary Swisco; Will was son of

Bartholomew Keep b 1631 & Helen Cupis; Bart was son of

Robert Keepe b 1604 & Margaret Harriott; Rob was son of

Bartholomew Keepe 1570 & Catherine Craft.


I also have a death cert for the Thomas Keep who was a convict abode was Paterson was aged 54 yrs had a ticket of leave came out on the Glory 1818 & died at Maitland on 25/11/1837 at age 54 yrs.

Well that is how I had believed until recent days so I have spent some time tonight checking out the IGI & found some work done by a Carol Macdougall from Frankston in Vic Aust on Keeps - very interesting!

I think this is where the disputed information begins. To me this even, is not verified even though it is on the IGI (in a lot of cases it is someone's research lodged with IGI & how reliable it is questionable depending if it has been verified by copy of the record (of the BD or Ms)). I have most of my records verified by certificates up to where I said on the previous list that I have posted.

I am fairly certain of the facts up to here

Sam was son of Richard Keep & Elizabeth Hull ----------------------------------

Richard & Elizabeth b1765 & 1764
they married 1788 they had 8 children;
Richard was son of
Thomas Keep 14/4/1734 & Ann Bates marr 19/5/1766 @ Marston Moretaine

new info??????

was son of
Thomas b 1682 marr 1720 Mary Lorkins Of Wootton
was son of
John Keep Yeomen b 1651 marr Rebecca Keep of Wellingborough
was son of
Thomas Keep b 1610 Marston Moretaine marr 1637 Ann Coal
was son of
William Keep b marr 1609 Audrie Jackson
was son of
William Keep b 1555 marr Etheldredra Keep
was son of
John Keep b 1530 marrIsabella Keep
was son of
John Keep the Elder 1510 marr Joan Keep
was son of
William Kepe 1485 Ecton marr Elizabeth Alyn of Gredon
was son of
William Kepe b @ Grendon marr 1470 Katherine
was son of
Thomas Kepe b 1390 @ Bozeat.

I think I may have not have it quite right yet from IGI (gets confusing when you are copying down late at night) but have to recheck.
